Does Money Make You Mean?
Paul Piff ‘04
University of California, Irvine
We’ll start by viewing Dr. Piff’s TED talk, then move to a discussion of the talk and the issues Dr. Piff raises. A brief summary of his talk:
It's amazing what a rigged game of Monopoly can reveal. In this entertaining but sobering talk, social psychologist Paul Piff shares his research into how people behave when they feel wealthy. (Hint: badly) But while the problem of inequality is a complex and daunting challenge, there's good news too.
